What is a Root Canal?
The root canal treatment procedure removes infected, inflamed and/or otherwise affected nerve pulp within a tooth. The pulp cavity is opened, and then this nerve pulp is carefully removed. In case you are concerned, the nerve pulp is no longer needed in mature teeth and only serves to function as a pain epicenter if damaged. Once the pulp is removed, the toothache you were feeling will be gone.
Depending on the extensiveness of the damage and the state of the tooth, the tooth will either be filled with a durable, tooth-colored resin or a permanent prosthetic dental crown will be used to replace your natural tooth crown. Don’t worry, OKC Smiles places beautiful dental crowns that most would never be able to tell is not your natural tooth.
Dr. Phan and the staff at OKC Smiles are amazing! I was in desperate need of dental care due to pain on my lower left molar. They got me in quickly to do an emergency root canal. It was a fast recovery and I am no longer in pain! Dr. Phan was very thorough and explained all the procedures. It’s so nice to find a dental office that cares about your health and well being. They truly go above and beyond for their patients. I highly recommend
OKC Smiles to everyone.
